|For the item in Wasteland 2, see Knife (Wasteland 2).|
Background[edit | edit source]
Knives are amongst the first primitive tools known, and have since been made from every material from flint and obsidian to high-test titanium and advanced composite plastics. As a result, knife fighting comprises an ancient and respectable family of combat forms known around the world.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
Your Desert Ranger Private fresh out of Ranger Center might want to equip his Knife if he or she is trained and has a modicum of Strength, Luck, and Agility. With extremely high Strength, Luck and Agility, and very high Knife Fight and Brawling skills, it is very possible for a character to take on hardcore enemies with knives and beat them soundly. However, in such endeavors, it's usually faster still to just give the character a Proton Ax and watch the carnage.
